Rothenberg Downgrades McConnell's Reelection Chances

On the heals of a new Survey USA poll that shows McConnell's support among conservatives is collapsing, national political analyst Stu Rothenberg has downgraded Mitch McConnell's reelection hopes. Rothenberg has traditionally listed the Louisville liberal's seat as "safe," but now only gives McConnell a clear advantage.

That advantage is quickly slipping away as Larry Forgy is gaining steam. McConnell now has a choice: Either deliver for Governor Fletcher or watch your own reelection hopes continue to drop like a rock.
